Cost of Living Hub

Welcome to the Cost of Living Hub. This site brings together all the latest information, support and guidance available to students affected by the rising cost of living.


Share your views on the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on students 
The APPG for Students, a cross-party group of parliamentarians focused on students’ issues, is holding an inquiry into the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on further and higher education students across the UK, with a view to making recommendations to institutions and to Government.  Share your views, which will inform the report and recommendations about how students can be best supported.


These pages will continue to be updated as additional support becomes available.
